How's life in the real world? Life in the field is sweet! After the last 6 weeks that I spent in the MTC this week in the field has been GLORIOUS! In California, the weather is always beautiful! It's never too hot or too cold, but it's always just right! I feel so blessed to be sent to a place like California. Here, the work is hard, but it's so satisfying when you find someone to teach! Most people here are Born-Again Christians or Catholics and have no interest in hearing anything at all about Jesus Christ! It can be disheartening sometimes, especially when you are trying your hardest, but I know that this is a true work and that god is preparing people for me to teach! In the meanwhile, we talk to EVERYBODY, so if you're in Long Beach California, watch out! Because we might just want to come and tell you all about Jesus Christ and how much he loves you! Haha!
This week, we got to talk with a man named Mike. Mike at first didn't want to talk to us about the message that we have, so we left and tried some other people on the street. Later, as we were walking back towards our car, we ran into him again and he decided to humor us and to let us talk to him about the Gospel. He had a lot of questions about Joseph Smith and a lot more questions about the Book of Mormon, so we stood there next to his garage and talked with him a bit about the Book of Mormon and why we read it alongside of the Bible. He still has some doubts, but he's going to let us come back and talk with him and answer more of his questions about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Please pray for Mike so that he'll be open to having us over more. I can see some good things in him.
I hope all of you are doing well! Did you watch conference? I did! It was phenomenal! If you haven't, no worries! Here,you can visit lds.org and listen or watch the current Prophet and Apostles of the Church speak to the world about the most important things in life: our families, our faith, and our Lord Jesus Christ!
I hope your week has been a good one and that you had a wonderful Easter!
Love you all!
